Leave Amman 52kms north to Jerash. In ancient times it was one of the wealthiest and most cosmopolitan cities in the ancient Near East. Settled by humans as early as the Neolithic period (c. 7500-5500 BCE) and founded as a Hellenistic city in the 2nd century BCE, Jerash is today noted for its fine Roman and Byzantine ruins, which rank among the largest and only preserved in the world after Rome.
Leave Jerash 25kms north to reach Ajloun. The marvels of nature and the genius of medieval Arab military architecture have given northern Jordan two of the most important ecological and historical attractions in the Middle East: the sprawling pine forests of the Ajloun-Dibeen area, and the towering Arab-Islamic castle at Ajloun, which aided in the defeat of the Crusaders eight centuries ago. Ajloun Castle (or Ajlun; Arabic: Qala'at ar-Rabad) one of the great examples of Islamic military architecture safeguarded the routes between Damascus and the south of Jordan, secured the safety of pilgrim and trade caravans traveling to the Hejaz, and also protected nearby iron mining operations - key to the manufacture of weapons. Enjoy the marvelous views from the top of the caste.
Leave Ajloun 26kms east to Pella. Pella, ancient capital of King Archelaus of Macedonia at the end of the 5th century BC and birthplace of Alexander the Great. By walking around Pella’s extensive ruines - the 400 m long Khirbet Fahl, the large Tell al Husn to the south and the fertile Wadi Jirm between them - the visitors can experience fascinating glimpses of many of Jordan's key historical periods. It is a site which offers something to discover for everyone’s interests, although best known are its classical (theater, bath house, nymphaeum) and Late Antique remains (at least three churches, a mosque, domestic houses.)
